Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the current challenges facing Nigeria are signs that the country is bound for greatness.
Osinbajo who is currently on a four-day visit to the United States, made this statement on Sunday while speaking during service at a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Bronx, New York.
He noted that greatness was impossible without a period of difficulties as currently being experienced by Nigeria.

He said: “Our country is bound for greatness. Whenever you hear that ‘oh, there are conflicts, oh there are difficulties’, just know that it is impossible to be great without difficulties.
“Even from the foundations of the earth, when God created the heavens and the earth, the scripture says on that first day, according to Genesis 1, there was confusion, complete confusion.”
Making reference to the scripture, he stated that the word and spirit of God are already hovering over the surface of Nigeria, and they would do something that would make the world to marvel.
He also urged members of the congregation and by extension all Nigerians to keep praying for the nation.
“We should remain in prayers for our nation, because all of us, whether you live here or intend to live here, the truth of the matter is that it was no accident that you were born a Nigerian.
“God makes no mistake. So, you have a stake in the success of your homeland, you have a stake in the success of your own nation, and as I said earlier, Nigeria is heading for greatness,” he added.
